Live Transmission : Soft Tissue Management Around Implants

 Abstract: Implantology has been in recent decade the miracle treatment of dentistry.   But this treatment is not without certain complications. In fact, pathologies   Such as peri-implantitis, recessions (in the case of a fine biotype around the implants, etc..) become more and more common as we move forward in time. However, these complications can be significantly limited by preventive treatments namely a good positioning of the implant during surgery, good prosthetic fulfilment, good hygiene... as well as a protective thick biotype.   There are various processes of soft tissue management techniques around implants including free gingival graft, Edlan Mejchar, palatal flap, pedicle connective tissue graft, etc... We are going to perform a live surgery of one of these processes in an effort to help limit subsequent complications.
